Water Damage Flooding Tips Prepare for flooding.

Water damage can occur with no warning. Protect your home from a flood in every way you can:

  1. Protect wells from taking safety improvement suggestions from a licensed contractor.
  2. Make sure your yard slopes away from your home to direct water away from it.
  3. Have a plumber install an exterior sewer backflow valve.
  4. Anchor fuel tanks.
  5. Have an electrician raise switches, sockets, circuit breakers, and wiring at least 12 inches above expected flood levels.

For winter(areas that experience snow):

  1. Rain can make snow melt quickly.
  2. Remove snow piled against home.
  3. Seal any cracks or gaps in foundation.
  4. Safely remove snow from roofs.
  5. Clear drains and gutters of debris and assure snow melts away from home.
